The Treatment Helpline


Often times those suffering from heroin addiction are also suffering from an underlying psychiatric disorder. This is different from the drug induced psychiatric problems addicts may face. Because of this, it has become harder to diagnosis patients in facilities. Some psychiatric disorders that co-occur with heroin addiction include:

Dual Diagnosis Rehab
  • Anxiety Disorder
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Bi-Polar Disorder
  • Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
  • Depression
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Panic Disorder
  • Social Anxiety Disorder

When it comes to mental disorders, it is often found that those suffering try to “self medicate” themselves. This means that they try to deal with their disorder on their without seeking professional medical help. Because the success rate of “self medicating” is low, it is common for these people to turn to drugs like heroin to release them from the symptoms of their mental disorder. The problem here is that over time, those who turn to drug like heroin will start to create an even stronger mental dependence on the drug. Not only this, but depending on the disorder, the abuse of heroin can increase the symptoms the disorder.

If you think you, or a loved one, may be suffering not only from heroin addiction, but also a mental disorder, call The Heroin Helpline today. We have the tools and resources to get the answers and help you need.
